March continues to be a prolific month for the premiere of three new digital collections in the DMR.
The Wayne M. Weber Architectural Records. http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm4/collection.php?CISOROOT=/WMWbrArch.This collection from the Drawings and Documents Archive includes photographs and drawings of Indiana covered bridges from Weber’s nearly 30 years (1940s – 1970s) photographing, documenting, and preserving these colorful structures. Weber was an accomplished architect and architectural photographer.
Thomas Neely Diaries. http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm4/collection.php?CISOROOT=/NlyThmsDiar This collection consists of digital copies of five volumes of diaries kept by Delaware County pioneer Thomas Neely (if you drive on or cross Neely Road on campus, you may recognize the name) from 1867 through 1901. These diaries are just the first in series of a digital diaries collection that will be developed in the DMR.
Delaware County Aerial Plat Maps. http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm4/collection.php?CISOROOT=/DelPltMps This is the successful (and early) completion of our 2009-10 LSTA grant project. The collection contains aerial plat maps received from the Delaware County Auditor’s Office, created in the 1970s to track divisions and combinations of properties in Albany, Daleville, Eaton, Gaston, Muncie, Selma, and Yorktown.
